The team tasked with investigating allegations that Kenya is interfering in its internal affairs has issued a statement in response to a number of allegations made by Somalia against Kenya.
The commission was appointed at the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) summit in Djibouti on December 20 after the Somali government filed a lawsuit against Kenya.

“The federal government has ordered all flights to Kismayo to pass through Mogadishu. However, Kenyan airlines have refused the order and no special permission has been given for any reason, ”the statement said.
The commission also said there was no evidence that Kenya had recognized the Jubaland administration.
“The participation of two prominent Kenyan lawmakers, Aden Barre Duale and Yusuf Haji, in the inauguration of Jubaland President Ahmed Madobe does not constitute recognition,” the commission said in a statement.
